If you are interested in purchasing and playing World of Warcraft's Wrath of the Lich King, you should be aware of the fact that there are minimum system requirements that your computer and internet connection must meet in order to play the game. As with any type of video game, there is a need to have the appropriate video cards, sound cards, virtual memory space, and hard drive space. Here, you will learn exactly what Blizzard Entertainment says is the minimum of system requirements when it comes to playing Wrath of the Lich King.

If you have a Windows based operating system, you should ensure that it is either Windows XP with the Service Pack 3 installed, or Windows Vista that has the Service Pack 1 installed. When it comes to the processor of the system, it is best to have one that has a Dual-Core or better, and it should be either the popular AMD Anthon XP with 1500 plus or the Intel Pentium that is a “4” and operates at 1.3 GHz. The absolute minimum when it comes to the memory is 512MB as far as RAM in XP, but at least 1GB in Vista. To optimize game play, XP players should have at least 1GB of RAM and Vista players should have at least 2GB of RAM.

When it comes to video and sound of the system, there are many different things to consider. A graphics card that is 3D based and that is designed for gaming as far as transforming images, lighting, and more is highly recommended when it comes to the graphics that you will run into on World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King. As far as sound is concerned, the motherboard of the system should have the capability of producing sound, and it should be able to play as far as compatibility with DirectX.

If you find that your system does not meet the system requirements, it is important to either upgrade, or purchase a new system so that you can experience the ultimate gaming experience with World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King!
